About Kimberly

Caregiving became my passion when I was asked to help a family member whose health was deteriorating and would not allow an unknown caregiver to help. I am very warm and compassionate by nature, with empathy and understanding of what someone must feel knowing they have lost their independence...of sorts, so I make it a point to make them feel that they are strong and independent I am there to just assist them in what they want to do. I have been fortunate to have a way of helping a person who doesn't want help to welcome it with encouragement and praise. My proudest achievement to date was to get a man the has severe Parkinson's, who could walk but just had no desire too try, as it was just to much effort, too walk daily and now rarely uses a wheelchair.. just his walker. The joy on the face of someone who looks forward to the time they have with you I priceless.

My part time caregiver job for many years has brough me great joy even after I graduated in English major in University of hawaii at manoa. Those I cared for and care love me and miss me for I truly become their freind, for I love caregiver job and love people. CLients mostly feel happy if they habitually wear a sad face due to their ailment or feel calm and confident if their personalities are prone to be irritated or impulsively self attack. Our physical condition is the sum of our choice of thought and action in every situation of the day. The science of human body I am learning from books and caregiver job provides vivivd circumstances first hand information between the two parties, how to deepen the bond no matter what physical ailment or mental darkness exists. Care giving is from my heart , I am awarded with love, experience subtle emotion development and see people get better because of me more than in any other jobs, so I am still a fun and cordiual caregiver.

I care! I've been a caregiver since 99' when I cared for my grandparents, then my parents. I'm a firm believer of that saying,\" do unto others as you want others to do unto you.\" Being a caregiver you need to have a heart, passion, patience, and understanding. I'm a family oriented person that was raised old school style and church. I'm a 50 yr old Polynesian woman with heart.
